Build ID: 281b639-6baa1d3-ef66a77-d866f25-f36d45
Running on Windows 7 Pro, SP1, 64 bit edition

The results were reproducible.
Comment 2 bfoman (inactive) 2012-07-17 11:43:44 UTC
Confirmed with:
Build ID: own W7 debug build
Windows 7 Professional SP1 64 bit

Manual correction from IB_SchmidtThewsEng to BIB_SchmidtThewsEng helped,
but then it doesn't work in Word.
Comment 3 Joel Madero 2012-09-11 21:21:59 UTC
Confirming, I get slightly different but still a problem clearly related. 

My issue is that after "The cite..." I get [Error: Reference source not found]

Marking as NEW and prioritizing.

Normal - Could prevent under some circumstances the ability to make high quality work

Medium - probably not affecting a lot of people but enough to qualify as Medium. This is particularly the case in academic setting or a setting where large documents with references are being created.

.doc file to reproduce the problem

I have another example of .doc file where references are not displayed.
I am not sure of the bibliography software which has been used, maybe EndNote.
Comment 8 Frederic Parrenin 2016-09-16 15:43:13 UTC
I forgot to add that I checked the bug in LO
